Overview

Food is our common ground, a universal experience. -James Beard

The saga of the Chili Queens of San Antonio, NASCAR kitchens tucked away in the crew pits at race tracks, the story of an unexpected kitchen—the George Foreman Grill—these stories and more from Hidden Kitchens, the popular and highly acclaimed radio series on NPR's morning edition, is now being released on a 3 CD set based on the new book Hidden Kitchens: Stories, Recipes & More from NPR's The Kitchen Sisters.

Produced by the Peabody Award winning radio team, The Kitchen Sisters, Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva, (creators of NPR's Lost & Found Sound and The Sonic Memorial Project) with Jay Allison, Hidden Kitchens explores the world of street corner cooking, kitchen traditions and visionaries, and how communities come together through food. These stories of secret, underground, unofficial and off the radar kitchens come alive in these sound rich stories full of an array of voices, music, and archival audio that capture a strong sense of place and time—stories that travel the country chronicling kitchen cultures past and present.

Hundreds of listeners called the NPR Hidden Kitchens Hotline with intriguing messages and hot tips about underground kitchens at nuclear test sites, secret civil rights kitchen, family recipes and more. Many of these funny, passionate and poignant messages are featured on this beautifully crafted, richly layered audio edition.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In one of the year's best nonfiction audio books, National Public Radio's Kitchen Sisters take you to weird places where people sometimes create strange food. You meet the Chili Queens of San Antonio and vegetarian tailgaters at Phish concerts; You visit a cooking school at a San Francisco jail. After Nelson and Silva put out the word on NPR for listeners to call in their favorite hidden kitchens, they were swamped with responses. This audiobook lets you hear those radio tips that were taped on an answering machine. McDormand as the reader fits this material perfectly (remember the pregnant deputy in Fargo, asking about buffets?) Buy four or five copies for holiday gift-giving, because you don't know anyone who won't love Hidden Kitchens." -Miami Herald

"The Kitchen Sisters have done some of the best radio stories ever broadcast. I know people who got into radio because they heard Nikki and Davia's work, and had no idea anybody could do anything like that on the air." -Ira Glass

    PURE DELIGHT

    Someone has said that a kitchen is the heart of a home - it's certainly the heart of this delightful audio book splendidly read by Academy Award winning actress Frances McDormand. Few who saw 'Fargo' will forget her command of the screen few who listen to 'Hidden Kitchens' will not be enchanted by her command of the stories, whether they're funny, moving or absurd. Renowned chef Alice Waters contributes a special commentary in which she notes: 'The curious and wonderful thing about the stories in this book is how much they resemble good things to eat. They can be surprising and they can be reassuringly familiar and they can be comforting and they can be outrageous.' How true! The audio is taken in part from NPR's Hidden Kitchen Hotline, which hundreds of listeners have called with a plethora of messages regarding recipes, kitchen happenings, and cooking successes and failures. There is also a good deal of new material which Nelson and Silva have gathered from a variety of sources. Listeners will be amazed to hear of the doings in a San Francisco cab yard, or by the lakes of Minnesota, or in a NASCAR kitchen paralleling a race track. And, there's more. 'Hidden Kitchens' is pure delight. - Gail Cooke
